There are a number of professionals and companies in Ireland that are tendering for and working on LEED projects, which is creating a need for LEED Green Associate and LEED Accredited Professional training. The IGBC has developed a LEED GA training programme to get professionals started on the path to LEED accreditation.
The LEED GA training programme consists of a one-day discussion and workshop to review the LEED GA exam topics, along with the LEED GA Study Guide and Core Concepts. Along with this, participants will be able to choose a time slot to view the USGBC’s webinar LEED 201: Core Concepts and Strategies.
The Core Concepts and Strategies webinar provides essential knowledge of sustainable building concepts that are fundamental to all LEED Rating Systems. It begins with an introduction to the benefits and integrative approach to green building, and a brief background on the U.S. Green Building Council and LEED, including basics of the building certification process.
Please note: This programme is not required to take the LEED GA exam, but provides participants with an understanding of the LEED systems and processes for the LEED GA exam, as well as a foundation for working on LEED projects in Ireland or abroad.
In order to take the exam you will need to register separately through the US GBC in order to schedule an exam through Prometrics exam centres in Ireland. For full detail on this process download the LEED GA Candidate handbook here.
